Tricklock’s Cloud Cover

Last run of shows begins tonight

Writer Christie Chisholm reviewed Elsa Menéndez’ one-person performance in this week’s Alibi. Described as “a collection of patches that ultimately—when pieced together—create a remarkable quilt,” Cloud Cover, or Conversations With Harry is a storytelling piece wherein Menéndez entertains patrons with heartfelt anecdotes from her past. All of this takes place in a theater setting that is constructed to feel more like someone’s kitchen. Tonight’s show takes place at The Tricklock Space (1705 Monte Vista) at 8 p.m. Seating is limited, but there are five more performances scheduled through Sunday.

Skeletons in the Trailer

Performer tackles love lost and suicide notes with dark humor

Christina Slyter’s new solo show is about a woman who has become a shut-in, terrified of the outside world, because her husband killed himself—yet it’s full of dark humor. “The show takes place on the night that she wakes up,” Slyter says, “and discovers that there are people in her house. She tries to be a good hostess to them and show them a good time ... “ The audience members are the visitors in her house, and as the woman gets closer to revealing truths, her hostess skills unravel.
